Sensex Prepares to break 16000 on the downside as Greece prepares for fresh elections…IPO Woes continue…another one bites the dust…Plastene India withdraws issue as received poor response…Interestingly SEBI continues Expansion Spree !…and Reliance continues to Buy back it’s shares !

Now you know why I’ve not been, of late, Valuing IPOs on this Blog …because of the high probability of them being withdrawn either because they are unworthy in the first place or simply overpriced or dangerously both !

IPO Woes continue…another one bites the dust…Plastene India withdraws issue as received poor response…Yesterday evening,Book Running Lead Manager, Motilal Oswal Investment Advisors Pvt Ltd informed the Exchanges that The IPO of Plastene India Ltd is being withdrawn due to unfavourable market conditions….The Issue was priced in the range Rs 81 to Rs 84 and was barely subscribed one third…Company,promoted by  Parekhs,is in the Flexible Packaging manufacturing business

Today the IPO of Speciality Restaurants Ltd has opened inviting offers in the Price Band Rs 146 to Rs 155…a bit steep,in line with valuations that Jubilant Food (Dominos Chain) commands…the BRLM is Kotak Mahindra Capital Company Ltd

Earlier this Month,the big IPO of Rs 1600 crs + of Samvardhana Motherson Finance too was withdrawn due to a poor response…while the IPO of Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri barely mustered subscription,but got through and is listed below Issue Price of Rs 120

As Greece prepares for Fresh Elections on June 17,2012 after an impasse in forming a coalition government,our Sensex prepares to break 16000 on the downside in early morning trading as I blog

In such an Environment,interesting to note that SEBI seems to be prospering………continues on an Expansion Spree of Hundreds of Crores… looking to own it’s own stand alone building in New Delhi and Residential Premises worth hundreds of crores….like it has done in Mumbai

…and Reliance continues to buy back it’s shares in terms of the Public Announcement it made on January 23, of yesterday it had bought back 14132375 shares at an aggregate of Rs 1028.71 crs (Excluding Brokerage,Service Tax,STT,Stamp Duty,Exchange Transaction Charges,and SEBI Fees)…that’s an average of Rs 728 per share….currently it quotes at 52 Week Lows @ Rs 675…check my recent blog on Reliance
